Lanivet Parish Church has been closed after it was damaged by a falling tree.

High winds last Thursday brought down the tree which struck the roof and porch of the Grade 1 listed building.

Bodmin rector, the Rev. Canon Graham Minors, said the damage was not as bad as first thought, but careful restoration would be required to the 15th century church.
